Wright State’s Elkins smiles through the pain


The role player will be playing a different role Saturday when the Wright State University women’s basketball team makes its first appearance in the NCAA tournament.

KC Elkins manages a smile. She’ll be there, torn ACL and all, when the Raiders play Kentucky at the Wildcats’ Memorial Coliseum.
